In all cases, her decision to start copying an artist happened before those artists achieved broader recognition. Nearly all of the artists she chose to copy are today considered iconic for their time or style. This has given rise to discussions amongst art critics how it has been possible for Sturtevant to identify these now famous artists at such an early stage.
Sturtevant, a former visiting professor in the MIT Visual Arts Program, is known professionally simply as "Sturtevant."
Her goal in duplicating the efforts of others, she has said, is to expand the definitions of originality and authorship, to widen the role of the creator and to broaden the meaning and purpose of art.
Sturtevant is involved in all stages of her art production and often teaches herself different artistic techniques to create the "originals." She initially focused on works by such American artists as Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Johns and Warhol.
